more information on where we can reside if there is going to be a ban completely exile us out of the city, but now that i am hearing what is going on that the programs are trying to find places for us i will try to find out a little bit more. i appreciate you guys doing what you can, but having a ban -- i know it's more of industrial vehicles that are being a problem than rv's, but i know a lot of the homeless people they recycle and some people don't clean up after themselves. they leave big messes and i think us being in rv's we try to contain our habitation. we have our bathroom for sanitation reasons. there is no really -- you know what? this is an idea for you guys to have more bathrooms or like out houses in some areas -- >> thank you. >> for sanitary reasons -- >> thank you. >> because a lot of the businesses won't allow to you walk in. >> thank you. thank you very much. >> [inaudible] >> thank you. thank you. >> hello. my name is isaac and i just have a couple of things that are on my mind. i was just wondering why -- okay. so the city is trying to fix the hom
understand your point of view. i think it's a good opportunity for us to focus on what could be done and what more to do and what we need with the vehicle component. >> i understand. any other questions? >> supervisor cohen. >> thank you. i wanted to take a minute and complement you and your team as well as you bevin and reaching out and finding four people. that is something to be acknowledged and i am really excited about that. >> quite a few more people expressed interest in it and wanted to learn about the possibility of having their vehicle stored. i'm just reporting on the folks i met with individually after we fliered who called me. people spoke with the outreach workers and got the same set of information. i am looking at the second level of people who really decided to affirmatively push for contact before the legislation that wanted the information and that maybe the higher functioning folks out there. >> thank you. why don't we open up this item for public comment? are there members of the public that would like to speak on item two? i don't have speaker cards in f
and i appreciate you fitting us in here, so they have a point by point analysis of what they found to be troubling, and in most case its wasn't the citizen's general obligation bond oversight committee to respond. it was the controller's office to respond. there were a few points that we had to respond to and one had to do with the frequency of meeting and where the whistle blower program was on the website and how available it was, and also how do we oversee it? what level of depth do we get and that's when we had discussions having to do with the privacy because if you don't feel you're anonymous you will definitely not come forward as a whistle blower versus the need for us to get more detail we were getting prior to that, so all of that, the civil grand jury member was certainly a part of that discussion, but the decision and the -- i wrote the report, and the decision was made by the entire committee. >> just a final question in terms of the staffing of this nine member body because you you're all volunteers, and we appreciate all the time that you put into it, so is there a
francisco will give us a opportunity with case management and we are midfiscal year but we are making a push for the stabilization beds and it's reality and if we say we're going to do something that we vtd ability to do it and there are not four or five stabilization beds vacant and we realize it's a population that is larger so with that if it's appropriate -- i did want to respond to some of the testimony and simply say if community meetings are going to happen i think it would be great to reach out to the coalition and see if the coalition would sponsor one with the mta. i think that would be helpful and people in the vehicles are not getting emails or letters from neighborhood associations and i think it's a good opportunity if the coalition is willing and certainly the resources we're providing in terms of stabilization beds, in terms of storage meet some of the standards that the coalition would like it's important to have their involvement and i recognize they're trusted by individuals not participated in the system so to speak and frustrated and not liked what they were offered pre
streets but it gives us an additional tool to address the issues related to over night parking of large vehicles on a focused location specific basis. these -- some of these locations have resulted in some negative impacts from parking over night vehicles -- over night large sized vehicles and that's what we're attempting to address. i also want to refresh your memory. we did a sampling of the neighborhoods in the city prior to the legislation being considered and over 450 type of vehicles that far in this classification we found that 42% of them were motor homes but more importantly over 50% of them consist of trucks and buss and trailers so this legislation will also capture those types of vehicles and it's very important because i think a lot of our -- the concerns that we received from the neighborhoods were for those vehicles being warehoused on the city streets, and from our survey we also found those vehicles that are out on the street that we sample 60% of them actually were registered with san francisco addresses, and of those only 20% are within 1/4 mile of where they're reg

this is doing. implementing vetting processes for using the data to evaluate the reasonableness of the bonds. to continue working with 311 to make sure the calls are appropriately routed to the whistle blower program so we get the calls to the program so we can keep the whistle blower program working well, and making sure we publicize the availability of the whistle blower program to all of the employees working for the city so that we can again make sure that we have people who are free from fear who feel they can use the program and they know it exist disps they're educated to what it means to use the whistle blower program. so what do we see in the future of our committee? well, one of the things we will have a report for you that will show the community engagement best practices, the results of that study, and also the design review best practices project, and we hope that will help to develop recommendations to the relevant stakeholders and of course that would include the supervisors when they're looking over the various projects they're considering doing with general obligation bond
proposition c was passed which requires us also to review and provide input for the city services auditor and also the whistle blower program. we have nine appointed members, and they're appointed -- over here on the left hand side are the names of the members. we have the vice chair john [inaudible] in the audience. some of us are appointed by board of supervisors, one by the mayor, and one by the civil grand jury and two by the controller and in my case i will be leaving the citizen's general obligation bond oversight committee shortly and i would urge another small business person if possible. my particular role is being active in a business organization. i think it would be great to have another small business person that comes into this role. so some of the things that we did this year we changed the frequency of our meetings from four times a year to six times a year, and we did that because we felt we didn't have enough time to address the bonds. i believe it's up over $2 billion in bonds which is a lot of money and a lot of responsibility and we thought more frequent meeting
